This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: The British Museum, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3DG England
Trade in paintings for mummies and historical artifacts on a tour of the British Museum. The enormous collection spans 6000 years of human history, featuring items from all over the world like Samurai armor and rare Assyrian lion hunt reliefs. Your guide will take a serious but enjoyable approach towards the museum’s galleries, discussing primitive tribes and fallen empires through a carefully chosen selection of items.
You’ll learn about the Mummy of Katebet, the Lewis Chessmen, and the Rosetta Stone – the actual rock, not the language learning program. Walk away with an understanding of what we humans have achieved during our short history and hopefully you’ll be proud to call yourself a part of this incredible species.
Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes
Stop At: Babylon Tours London, 80 Cathcart Road, London SW10 9DJ England

Join us on a private or small group tour through the National Gallery and the British Museum or hit the streets through a historic tour of the center and (maybe) catch a glimpse of Kate or the rest of the royal family. Our young, energetic guides at Babylon Tours will introduce you to London in the best way possible, from Big Ben to the street art of its multicultural East End.

One of the best we have done in the last three weeks in Europe. Kathy is very Knowledgeable and obviously loves her job .
Alex was the worlds best tour guide!
He was fantastic! We had a ten year old and a thirteen year old and two adults. We all loved history but thought that we really lacked any l relevant knowledge, especially for the children. Alex selected items as we went round the museum that were the best fit for us. His passion REALLY enthused us! He was patient, thoughtful and efficient. We would like to go on more tours with Alex. If you want to visit The British Museum and you have a group like ours, you must do this small group tour, otherwise it could be overwhelming.I would not hesitate to recommend this tour.
Great guide Alexander Mariotti
we very much enjoyed our small-group tour we were the only two in the group, our guide Becky asked us our main interest, as this is a huge museum, and adapted the tour likewise also showing us the other most interesting or controversial pieces of the museum.
the tour also took us to a few lesser known civilizations and sparked our interest in those .
Manny thanks to Becky for making our history tour a succes
Angus was our guide, he was excellent. I was in awe of this fabulous museum.
Our host was very knowledable.........good tour but a little over priced
Fantastic Museum. Our guide was insightful and energetic and interacted great with out 3 children. Highly recommended!
Probably our best tour of the bunch. Only 4 of us, including Angus, our guide, who was very knowledgeable, courteous, funny, and witty. Good highlights tour of a huge facility. Pace was about right.
The tour was wonderful. It was a great way to learn and experience the museum in a way that was not overwhelming. The guide was friendly, fun and a very good teacher.
Our tour with Becky was amazing! She knew so much about everything we saw and made the experience much more rich than it would have been if we had just wandered through on our own. Totally recommend this tour!
